Re: Time to say Hi! with a few photos

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.

E350 - I sooo appreciate someone with honest and direct advice (and a sometimes differing view of things ).
The engine in this rig isn't the original. According to the previous owner, it's a crate engine that has now 30,000+ miles on it. He could come up with the receipt for the exchange, but not with the paperwork for the engine. According to a few people that looked at it, it is indeed the 351 (don't ask me how they know...), but I wouldn't know how to tell.
I think I'll go ahead and figure out more details about the engine before I start asking more specific questions as I don't want to look like an engine savage - which I am, though

Anette

Re: Time to say Hi! with a few photos

The 5.8 is commonly referred to as a 351. It's the same motor I have in my 95 SMB.

When girls are bored: pictures!

Nothing unsual to see there.

I've been meaning to post you this. Paste your vin # in and it will show what your vehicle came with from the factory:

Thanks for the link to the VIN decoder - that's a pretty nifty tool! Will check as soon as I get home from work!

Re: Time to say Hi! with a few photos

Very cool rig! I love the stripes! I remember when this was for sale before I had the funds for mine and was bummed b/c it seemed like a great deal.

Cheers

I asked Scott and he said they were checking out the manual disconnect for the rear differential. Oddly enough the original owner used to tow this SMB behind his 40-footer RV!

Haven't had a chance last night to check on the VIN number, but I am eager to check that out this weekend!



MrHenrietta - I think you scored by holding out and buying the one you did

I just did this and this is what it came up with: Displacement L/CI 5.8/351
So I guess it's the 351 if the replacement engine is the same that was in it from the factory - but how can I find out if it's the C or W?

Re: Time to say Hi! with a few photos

Even though I have a 351W in my Bronco, I always have to look up the differences every time the issue comes up. I do also believe the 351C has a higher compression (somewhere in the 11:1 ratio) which necessitates high octane gasoline.
